Singers are a dime a dozen in Nashville, so despite her mama’s urging, psychic Ariana Ryder’s working her way towards a career in law enforcement at the FBI, one tray of fetched coffee at a time, instead. She’s got an extremely handsome boss, a dancing partner among the lab techs, and a solid year as the team rookie under her belt…

Right until the director gives her a big break, working undercover as a singer at a club to investigate why it’s being targeted by a serial killer. This might have worked better if the club didn’t happen to be a vampire nest.

Now, with the vampires’ investigator, Quil, on her case, the sparks are flying and the jurisdictional battle isn’t the only thing heating up as they race to solve the case before the killer strikes again!

The Willow and the Thorns: The Pandoris Annals (a fantasy)

by Paul and David Still

What’s the best way to be a hero? Are ideals and beliefs enough to carry someone through the trials of war? Or does it take realism, and pragmatic calculations to save a life as well as one’s soul?

Garren always wanted to be a hero. Gabriel always wanted to be a king. An ancient power forces Garren to flee his homeworld to live with his brother Gabriel and uncle Mitchell, the prince and king of Surlon. His arrival couldn’t be more ill timed. Zertock is rumored to have returned, and the mystery of his wife’s murder has yet to be solved. King Mitchell Varson makes the controversial decision to reopen the investigation which could lead to the conviction of three of Surlon’s most prominent members. This ruling catapults Surlon’s greatest warriors into action, forcing Garren and Gabriel into the middle of horrific battles and political intrigue, where the boys begin to understand the true consequences of their dreams. To further complicate matters, a prophetess has entered the scene with an ambiguous prophecy which she believes that Garren is supposed to fulfill, yet she insists that Garren has a choice and can return home if he likes. Can Garren choose to be a hero after seeing the horrors of war for himself? Can Gabriel uncover why his newly discovered brother was forced to flee to Surlon in the first place? And can he show the people of Surlon that not only was he born to be king, but he deserves the role as well? Better yet can he do all of this before his new brother takes the throne? Either way both boys are forced to realize that sometimes the biggest tragedy in life is getting exactly what you want.

Stumbling (The Fool’s Path Book 1)

by C. M. Martens

When you find yourself tackled by fate, do you give chase, or run and hide?

After a terrible fire leaves her friends dead, Desiree finds herself back in the house she grew up in, avoiding life. With no memory of what happened, her gut tells her the event has something to with the supernatural strength, speed, and endurance she now has. Rather than face her guilt-ridden grief, she hides in her ignorance.

When something that shouldn’t be real tackles her to the dirt, she can no longer avoid her past.

Following the creature through the night, she’s drawn into a world she never imagined possible. Forced to trust the arrogant stranger who shows up to save her leaves Desiree wondering where to turn. What will the price be for his answers? And can they even be believed?

As the truth of her world becomes harder to understand, she’s forced to use the very beings that are after her to supply her with explanations that might plug the holes in her memories, and maybe even allow her closure to move forward with her life. Will she be allowed to choose this forward path? Or be forced to live as dictated by the overseers of a long lost culture?

Kazi Boku (Crystals of Empire Book 1)

by mark poyhonen

Kazi Boku, book one of Crystals of Empire

The Crystals of Empire is an epic series following Kazi Boku’s life in the troubled world of Starn. Tyrus Hammersvold created potent crystals capable of healing any injury or curing any illness. Once activated by a tuning fork, they even allow an appendage to be â??transferred’ from one being to another. The entire life force of any sentient being powers the rods and anyone using an activated rod absorbs a proportional quality of the entity destroyed to power its healing properties. Tyrus uses this capability to create new beings-constructs made to serve his purpose. He can merge and combine the attributes of any creature whose life force is extracted by his crystals.
Tyrus has lived for ages and plans to dominate the world behind the façade of his religion. He fashioned The Temple of Kaal to provide free education while indoctrinating all attendees. His Temple graduates subvert the writing of laws to twist the culture. His nefarious use of Crystals can provide healing to those willing to offer favors to the Temple. He beguiles the aristocrats with healing services, often required after â??accidents’ have occurred to family members or friends.
Tyrus also rewards his sordid followers by giving them the settled land and homes in the outlying areas of Vissing. He does not want his degenerates to remain in the cities after their use in no longer required. His generous allotment of other people’s land also offers an opportunity to encourage hate for Clousen amongst the general population. Tyrus detests the Clousen. They worship Dun, an alternative to the Temple of Kaal, and he blames them for any mishap. The mercenaries plant Clousen artifacts after performing their butchery.
Tyrus desires the villages established at the edge of the western Vissing plains, and he plants a monstrous bear to chase away the settlers currently living in the area of the Boku farm. When the bear fails, Tyrus sends in the mercenaries.
Kazi Boku’s character, honed by integrity, hard work, and a loving family, is about to be tested.

Ray of Light (The Incandescent Series Book 1)

by Elle Scott

Will her choice lead to peace, or will it lead to destruction?

What if five minutes became five years?
What if friends became foes?
What if every truth became a lie?

Yesterday, Nora worked at Palladium Enterprises with her closest friends, collecting orbs that have the power to protect and destroy.

Today, she’s caught in a war.

Eighteen-year-old Nora Ray works for a secret company where, along with her team-mates, she is given the task to locate and retrieve power orbs.

On a routine mission, she steps into a vault-like room and is frozen in time. When she emerges five years later, she finds her friends on opposing sides of a war. While Nora struggles with who to trust, she is given a one-of-a-kind orb that transforms her desires into visible energy. She now holds the key to stopping the war.

But first she has a choice to make… Which side will she be on? And will her choice lead to peace or will it lead to destruction?

One choice can change everything.

Ray of Light is Elle Scott’s debut novel, and is the first in a Science-Fiction/Contemporary Fantasy trilogy called The Incandescent Series. Ray of light follows three strong females as they find themselves in the crossfire of a war over mysterious orbs. The strange appearance of these orbs, where they come from, or what they will be used for is not what threatens these girls the most; their biggest obstacle will be the choices they each have to make.

“A dramatic, engaging story, with impressive worldbuilding and intriguing characters. Ray of Light is sure to appeal to young adults who love fast-paced SF books.” – Madeline Dyer, Amazon bestselling author of The Untamed Series.

“A real cliffhanger with all of the elements of a stunning story. Beautiful imagery and wonderfully complex, developed characters add to a plot which is fast-paced, never predictable and always twisting and turning. The differing perspectives of the characters raise important moral issues and great discussion points. First person narrative meant that I strongly felt the characters’ emotions; pain, excitement, lust, embarrassment, happiness, uncertainty, and grief. I truly had those world crashing down, slow motion, stopped-in-time, internally chaotic moments. When I love a book, I devour it. I couldn’t stop reading- and the best thing is, there are sequels! Ray of Light is a must-read!” – Jacqui, amazon review

“Elle Scott, and her debut novel Ray of Light, transformed me from speculative fiction sceptic to devotee.” – Fiona Weaver, memoirist.


“Even after darkness has crept throughout my body and threatened to leave me empty, I don’t feel hollow. Instead, a small sparkle of light glistens in the distance, and it’s called hope.” – Nora Ray
